New products, sustainability focus, and an update on the status of the UNITED CAPS plant in Malaysia will be featured at the show.
UNITED CAPS will be located in Hall 103, booth AR41 in the French pavilion at the show, which is scheduled for 14 to 17 June at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC) in Thailand. ProPak Asia, the regional’s number one international trade event for Food, Drink & Pharmaceutical Processing & Packaging Technology, is a must-attend industry event in Asia, for Asia. At the show, key UNITED CAPS executives and experts will be available to answer visitor questions, suggest solutions and explain UNITED CAPS strategies that are in place to provide a unique level of support to the Asian Pacific region, including its manufacturing plant in Malaysia.
“We are excited to again be present at this important event,” said Astrid Hoffmann-Leist, Chief Innovation & Communication Officer, who is stationed in Malaysia and who is responsible for all business activities in the Asia Pacific region in her additional role as Business Director. “In this thirtieth year of the event, we will be bringing two brand-new products debuting in Asia for the first time, as well as a range of other UNITED CAPS products that serve the needs of Asian customers.”
Featured at the show
At ProPak Asia, UNITED CAPS will be highlighting three products that are especially important for the region. These include:
SAFE-TE, a premium infant nutrition solution for Asia, engineered with impenetrable security technologies and exceptional hygiene features, including UNITED CAPS’ industry-leading clean scoop chamber and its DropDown Lock tamper-evident technology that offer added convenience for new parents.
Bump Cap, an innovative one-of-a-kind solution designed to reduce global food waste by making it easy to determine whether food products continue to be safe to consume. This intelligent freshness indicator is designed to change the way people think about what a cap can do and how they can actively fight food waste. The Bump Cap makes it easy to determine if contents have begun to degrade. Not only is reducing food waste important for the planet, but this alone also reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Once beverage begins to degrade, bumps occur on the top of the cap, giving a tactile indicator of freshness. The Bump Cap is making its Asian debut at the show.
23 H-PAK, a brand-new and innovative approach to tethered closures for carton packaging, one of the first to be brought to market and also debuting in Asia at the show. Its cutting-edge design provides a clean and smooth opening, cutting through the prelaminated hole with minimal effort. It has an audible click when opening, a satisfying sound that lets consumers know their closure is in the perfect open position. Once opened, it is in the perfect position for use, providing optimised no-drip flow of product during dispensing.
A wide range of other solutions from UNITED CAPS will also be on display in the UNITED CAPS booth. This includes closures made from post-consumer recycled material, closures that are lightweighted to require less plastic, and closures that are recyclable for a more circular lifecycle approach.
“At UNITED CAPS, we are committed to leaving the world better than we found it,” said CEO Benoit Henckes. “The solutions we are presenting at ProPak Asia are well aligned with this goal. We are especially pleased to be bringing two unique, first-in-the-world solutions to ProPak Asia, the Bump Cap and the 23 H-PAK. These solutions demonstrate our ongoing efforts to deliver world-class functionality and sustainability. We are also delighted with the performance of our plant in Kulim, Malaysia, a key element of our CLOSE TO YOU strategy that helps us better serve the Asia Pacific region and brings us closer to customers to ensure we understand their needs and respond effectively to them.”
Henckes notes that the Malaysia staff has become a cohesive team of some 30 team members in a state-of-the-art facility who delivered close to 70 million closures to the region in 2022.
Visitors to the UNITED CAPS booth will have many opportunities to learn more about UNITED CAPS’ dedication to bringing more sustainable, safe and innovative packaging to market and its UNITED WE STAND and CLOSE TO YOU messaging.
